So, I saw Quantico for the first time. Yeah, I know, I know, it’s in the third season already, I like a good gripping drama, but the incentive to check this season out comes from the want to see Mrs. Marlee Matlin, who was last had a run on Magicians and was a costar on Switched At Birth, act as a badass agent, and, Man, does she deliver. Right off the bat, she has to deal with a prick on her team, who has issues with LISTENING to her because of her deafness. She signs and speaks. Of course, this is an issue many of us deal with regardless of whether we’re deaf, in a wheelchair, or whatever. When they’re looking at a video sent by The Widow, the heavy of the episode, she says “clear eyes,” trying to get people to look at details in each frame.
It never ceases to amaze me how people can just write off someone when they’re deemed lesser by a difference like that person didn’t have to go through the same things, if not more, to get where they are in life…it doesn’t matter the fact that they’re on the same team. It’s just they’re different, so that puts them lower on the totem pole. We have to prove ourselves constantly.
With all our regular shows wrapped for the season, we’ve been looking for new stuff to get into. Thursday nights, we’ll be kickin’ it with Mrs. Matlin and her crew to watch her make waves on the force and see what capers they solve. Check ‘em out if you already aren’t watching.
Be good to each other.
